NYTVIP provides point-of-sale rebates to fleets across New York State that purchase or lease new medium- and heavy-duty electric trucks and buses (weight class 3 through 8) and scrap a similar older diesel vehicle that is part of their fleet. Participating truck or bus dealers provide discounts to their customers at the time of sale for reimbursement. NYSERDA administers the Truck Voucher Incentive Program in partnership with NYSDOT and NYSDEC, who provide funding for the program.
The New York State Department of Transportation distributes about $3.0 billion annually in Statewide Mass Transportation Operating Assistance (STOA), and other transportation assistance, to approximately 130 transit operators. New York State transit systems carry nearly one-third of the nation’s transit riders and provide nearly one-quarter of transit services nationwide. Over the past five years statewide ridership has increased by about 13%; it is estimated that more than 70% of these trips are work related.

These funding programs improve access to the transportation system for all users and advance New York State’s nation-leading agenda to fight climate change by supporting the construction of new sidewalks, shared use paths and other enhancements that facilitate the use of non-motorized modes of travel and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The Highway Emergency Local Patrol (HELP) program provides free roadside emergency services on many major roads throughout the state during peak travel times. The assistance was established in 1994 to increase safety and to decrease congestion by clearing broken-down vehicles from active lanes of traffic. Seventy red, blue, and white service trucks cover 16 patrol areas in many metropolitan areas throughout the state, aiding more than 65,000 motorists annually. (DOTs TIM program is estimated to reduce 18,000 Metric Tons of CO2 per year.)
Administered by the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), the Public Transportation Modernization and Enhancement Program apportions $41 million in State funding to counties, cities, and regional authorities to upgrade and enhance public transportation services.
New York has committed to being a leader in EV infrastructure, investing up to $250 million through 2025 to build fast, affordable and reliable charging stations throughout the state so New Yorkers can drive electric with confidence.
